Christmas Shoebox Appeal in 6th Class

Over the past few weeks the two 6th classes have been busy organising our Christmas Shoeboxes for Team Hope. What we did was we filled our shoeboxes with little treats and useful things like colouring books ,copies ,hats ,gloves facecloths etc. for the children in need. Then we wrapped them in colourful wrapping paper. We then put a label on them saying what year group ours was for and if we wanted a girl or boy to get it. Some of us even put little notes inside for the kids. Finally we delivered them to Team Hope to be sent to the kids in different countries around the world. We had great fun doing them!

6th Class Visit Glasnevin Cemetery


On the 25th of October, I went to Glasnevin Cemetery & Museum with my class and we saw the graves of famous Irish people like Charles Parnell, Grace Gifford and Michael Collins. We learned that where Parnell is buried there are about 12,000 people who died of cholera buried there too! And we learned that every Saturday at 10am flowers are placed at Michael Collin’s grave. We went into Daniel O’Connell’s crypt where he was buried with ten of his family members. We saw builders reconstructing the stairs in his round tower exactly as it was before. We sang some of the song Grace at Grace Gifford’s grave too, before we visited the Botanic Gardens to have lunch. We all really enjoyed the trip!
